in a way you wonder because of superstorm sandy and the amount of money, if you are going to talk about the budget, you have to have this conversation about the climate since these natural disasters clearly are becoming more and more, but i want to point out a quote that barack obama said in an interview five years ago when he was still running for president, and he compared himself to reagan. he says i think ronald reagan changed the trajectory in america in a way that richard nixon did not and in a way that bill clinton did not. the reason i point out that quote. i thought it was an important quote, and it gave you a sense of what kind of president obama wanted to be, and i think you've heard in the maugral address today in the way that president obama believes ronald reagan mainstreamed the conservative movement in the 1980s, that one of the things he wants his president to do is to basically mainstream the liberal progressive movement in the same way, so if the country is, say, center or center right, you can have this argument that when he leaves that he has mainstreamed it and mov
